Meursault 2017, Maison Jaffelin
Produced by Maison Jaffelin
Jaffelin, the smallest of the great Burgundy wine houses, entered a new chapter in its history in 2004, when it completely renovated its vat room and fitted it out with high precision equipment. Marinette Garnier, oenologist-winemaker, creates these "hand-made" wines in this magical location in the historical centre of Beaune. Since then, Jaffelin continues to present the very best of the finest Burgundy terroirs within a comprehensive collection of wines, which are recognised in prestigious wine competitions and appreciated by connoisseurs around the world.
One of the most famous names in Burgundy, Meursault tends to have a little more buttered-toast than its neighbour Pulilgny-Montrachet. The trick is to make sure you have enough freshness to balance the deeper, riper fruit flavours, sweet spice and nuts (grilled almonds). So it is a very generous, almost opulent wine with exceptional balance. Power and poise.Download Technical Note
